October 26 Weekly Message


Hello Pleasant Grove Families,


This is Principal Batten with news about what to expect for the upcoming week at Pleasant Grove Elementary.


What will this week of school look like:


On Monday, October 26, students in Preschool through Grade 3 who are assigned to Cohort A will return for in-person learning.  All other students will continue with online remote learning this week.


As we welcome students back to school you will notice health and safety changes that have been implemented.  This will begin with screenings and temperature checks before any child leaves their family car at the carpool loop or any bus rider enters the building.


If your child is feeling sick or not well then please stay at home.


Visitors and volunteers are not allowed in the building at this time. Your patience and cooperation with these public health measures is appreciated.


The Positivity Focus for this week is Creativity.


Report Cards for Quarter 1 will be emailed to families at the end of the school day on Friday, October 30.
